Situated to the north of Regent’s Park, Primrose Hill is a popular and fashionable region of northern London, offering panoramic views of the surrounding neighbourhoods. The name Primrose Hill derives from the grassy hill that is central to the region.
The hill was recognised as being of significance in 1842 when an Act of Parliament was passed to protect the hill as a public area. Around the public land, there are rows of pretty Victorian terraces that have stood the test of time and remain popular with the City set. Primrose Hill is situated conveniently close to the city centre, while escaping the most densely populated inner city locations. Unsurprisingly, this means that Primrose Hill is expensive and fashionable for both locals and visitors.
